Album Notes

These twelve piano pieces were inspired by elements of Navajo culture found throughout the Navajo Nation (Dinétah). Each piano piece is preceded by a short introductory passage in Navajo. These passages are accompanied by Native American flute and piano.


The pieces range in character from reverent and meditative ("Cedar") to playful and lighthearted ("Fry Bread"). This album also includes a piece written for two pianos ("Pathways"). On this recording, both piano parts are performed by Chee.
